Goblin was published in 2010 when Tyler was then 20 years old and tried to establish himself as a respectable rapper. The Goblin lyrics Tyler the Creator don’t quite capture his personality like the albums that came after it did, but they demonstrate that Tyler was aiming for controversy. There is no way to avoid criticism for using such graphic imagery in songs, and Tyler quickly learned that there is no such thing as negative publicity. To add shock value to his work, he takes on the roles of racists, sexists, rapists, as well as other offensive characters; the attention he seeks as an artist is given to him by outraged listeners who share his name some buzz, even if it is unfavorable.
Full of Goblin lyrics Tyler the Creator
You wouldn’t do that Tyler
Kill yourself, or anyone, you don’t even have the balls to begin with
What you need is me
I just want to talk to you, its been awhile since your last session
So tell me what’s been going
I’m not a fucking role model (I know this)
I’m a 19 year old fucking emotional coaster with pipe dreams
So Kanye tweeted tellin’ people, hes bumpin’ all of my shit
These motherfuckers think I’m supposed to live up to something? shit
I’m still jacking off and proceeding my life careless
And getting more pussy ’cause I tell bitches I’m Wood Harris (as you should)
LA to Paris, I’m getting these weird stares,
from skate parks and airports it’s all in the air, its weird
Yonkers dropped and left their craniums mind-fucked,
now competition missing like that nigga my mom fucked
He still hasn’t called me yet (it’s not your fault)
That’s a whole fucking different argument
Shit, I got over it
And a couple bucks in my pocket, so now I could go buy a couple hot pockets
So grandma can stop cooking those nasty ass colligreens
Pressures on me like this top hat bastard intro, how the fuck I’m gonna top that?
OK you guys caught me
I’m not a fucking rapist, or a serial killer, I lied
(You know, you just wanted attention)
I tried too hard huh?
Made a couple thou and I just don’t know what to buy yet
Supreme shit is free and I don’t drink so fuck a wine set
Nigga fuck a mindset, my brain is an obscenity
I’m fucked in the head, I lost my mind with my virginity
Oh, that’s a triple 3-6 isn’t he a devil worshiper?
’cause I’m too fucking ignorant to do some research
I’m a start a group,
so no one else gets the respect they deserve ’cause of you
(Bastard was good though)
What you think I recorded for?
To have a bunch of critics call my shit a bunch of horror core?
Like I didn’t make Parade or Inglorious
’cause I’m too fuckin’ scared to tell my friends the way I really fucking feel?
Of course they only listen
To lyrics about me pissing off
In the tombs of Lara Croft
I’m getting pissed off
Message boards are on my dick I need to piss away
Lemme bust one in they mouth, I know they feel the flavor
Can’t they just be happy for me like, a kid with nothing living out his dreams
Why they gotta fucking hate?
I don’t even skate anymore, I’m too fucking busy
I can barely kick flip now
People excited think this shit is so tight
Making me co-sign with rappers I don’t even like
What the fuck you want me to do? start to gobble this mic
Start jacking em off, till his cap blasting off
Fuck that, ’cause these niggas ain’t fuckin’ with me
’cause I don’t listen to the immortal tech of the nique
And all this underground bullshit can never gone peak
On the billboard top 20 and jam of the week
Id rather listen to Baduh and Pusha the T
And wacka flocka flame instead of that real hip hop that’s full of the shit
But they wanna critique
Everything the the wolf gang has ever released
But they don’t get it
’cause its not made for them
The nigga that’s in the mirror rapping, its made for him
But they do not have the mindset, that is same as him
I’m not weird, your just a fagot, shame on him
I’m not homophobic fagot
What the fuck is a good performance?
I get on stage and have as much fun as I can
Who doesn’t have ADD?! I don’t
Therapy’s been saying that niggas getting offended
They don’t wanna fuck with me ’cause I do not fuck with religion
But see that’s my decision you fuckers don’t have to listen
And here, put this middle finger in your ear
Someone gets blamed
If some white kid had aimed
His AK-47 at forty seven kids
And I don’t wanna see my name mentioned
College wasn’t working
And I wasn’t working
So I sat at home jerking off until my dick was hurting
But I was determined to be great
So this classes can wait
’cause those 4 days I went, I wasn’t learnin’ shit
Now I’m living dreams i’ve wanted since 8th
And I can afford to get my mother something on her birth, day
They claim the shit I say is just wrong
Like nobody has those really dark thoughts when alone
I;m just a teenager, who admits hes suicide prone
My life is doing pretty good
So that day is postponed for now
But wow, life’s a cute bitch full of estrogen
And when she gives you lemons nigga throw em at pedestrians
I still live in my grandmas house
Sell out a fuckin’ show in London just to end up on couches
I hate my fuckin’ life, but when I make that announcement
My hero calls my phone, just to put that in doubt then
And then I am confused and I want energists out
My friends really think I’m playing when I say I need counseling
I sit in grandmothers living room and just pout and shout
Sometimes I just wanna die
Odd future came from the bottom
And its gonna take a couple armed armies to stop em
All you fucking lames don’t have to like me
The devil doesn’t wear Prada, I’m clearly in a fucking white tee
What’s unique about the Goblin song?
The album’s general tone is established by the opening track, “Goblin.” This song was ideal for the beginning. A deep, distorted voiceover that serves as Tyler’s evil conscience, as well as a recurring theme throughout the album, opens the song. In the opening line, Tyler makes it clear that he is not a role model, as well as he goes on to discuss his feelings regarding his recent rise to fame.
Tyler acknowledges that he is a 19-year-old emotional journey with unrealistic expectations, not a “role model.” The album contains a lot of coarse languages. This is not meant as a warning or implying that profanity reduces vocabulary. Take this as a warning if you’ve never heard Tyler’s music before; the murky lyrics are difficult to stomach, esoteric, as well as roped with a highly ambitious tenacity that will force you to shut up and listen.
On the surface, Goblin appears to be primarily about suicide, rape, as well as arson. Why, then, is his sluggish, nauseating hip-hop so alluring? Tyler’s words may be insane, but they never appear forced. It’s challenging to think of another artist who seems to express himself more easily.
The other star of the album is Tyler’s production, which combines Italo-horror synths as well as slow-churning grinds to create an offensive hip-hop sound unmatched by anything else. Whether you like it or not, this is where hip-hop is going.
Despite this, Goblin is an hour long and features songs that drag on for longer than seven minutes. Although not likely his most substantial argument, this one is undoubtedly the loudest.

Why Goblin by Tyler the Creator is controversial?
A comrade with the username ‘kacper’ on reddit did a statistic that Tyler’s Goblin album has 375 words ‘fuck’, 130 words ‘bitch’, 115 words ‘shit’, 85 words ‘n***’ *’, 60 words ‘dick’, 25 words ‘ass’, 15 words ‘fag’. A total of 720 bad words, for the Deluxe version of the Goblin album at 82:06. So almost every 7 seconds, Tyler has to curse once to get his mouth.
And compared to the most cursed hip hop albums, the Goblin disc is worse than the Efil4zaggin album of the four NWA gangsta guys and only loses two Tupac albums and one UGK duo album. The thing is that all three albums of Tupac and UGK are double discs with a length of time that must be half time longer. So Tyler and his Goblin disc quickly ranked at the top of the ‘disgusting’ level.
Tyler was prohibited from performing in the UK for 3 to 5 years, despite having already made several trips there since the song’s publication. Theresa May, the UK’s Prime Minister, justified the ban by pointing to Goblin’s violent as well as “incendiary rhetoric.” Tyler claimed that racism was to blame for the ban but also that UK conservatives were offended by the idea of their children “looking up to a black man.” 2019 saw Tyler the Creator granted permission to visit the UK once more. Police nonetheless used the occasion to call off at least one performance due to a “rowdy crowd.”
